in Woodstock, GA |
Dr. Ricotta is a wonderful doctor. His curriculum vitae speaks for itself, but he is also a kind, caring, and compassionate person. Everyone in his office has also been very caring and considerate. I feel privileged to have him as my vascular surgeon.
in Atlanta |
Tells it like it is and explains in layman terms Explained when a procedure could do more damage and sometimes it is best left alone. Not what I wanted to hear but understand the high risk which I'm not willing to take. Must protect what I have ..
in Cumming , GA |
Dr. Ricotta is a rare combination of a physician with stellar educational and experience combined with patience and thoughtfulness in patient care. He takes his time to educate and explain conditions to patients. He clearly outlines in laymen terms, treatment options including risks and benefits. His office staff is excellent. They are consummate professionals who genuinely care for each patient. Scheduling is efficient and staff is on site to perform necessary testing. Had a great experience

Dr. Ricotta is an extremely professional and knowledgeable doctor. He was referred to me by a friend. I looked up his credentials before I made my appointment. I was really impressed by his educational background. I called his office and was really impressed by the kind of service I was given by his secretary. I had my appointment with Dr. Ricotta, and had my tests that he thought I should have, in a matter of weeks. I received the results immefiately. He is GREAT! I felt very informed by him!
